So this was the first week of orientation, not too many ground breaking knowledge, but all in all fun. I have met now the rest of the international students, not all of them part of the CIS program. I have colleagues from Canada, India, China, Brazil, Argentina, Italy and Madagascar. We truly have someone from each of the corners of the globe. Each has their own perspective and have valuable information to share.
I’ve spent the last week getting to know most of the students, and I have learned a great deal from them. I’ve befriended most of them and I feel very comfortable around them. Hopefully we will be better acquainted by the end of orientation.
